The areas of Multiple Objective Programming and Goal Programming (MOP/GP) make use of a set of methods and procedures designed to solve problems formulated within a mathematical programming framework for which a stack of conflicting objectives is considered. The application of MOP/GP procedures brought considerable contributions to the improvement and competitiveness at many economic sectors and firms.
The objective of this special issue of the International Transactions in Operational Research (ITOR) is to gather not only recent algorithmic, theoretical and methodological developments in the fields of Multiple Objective Programming and Goal Programming, but also to publish surveys, applications and case studies.
The deadline for submission is November 30, 2010. Although we strongly encourage authors who presented work in these areas at the MOPGP International Conference (held in Sousse, Tunisia, from May 24 to 26, 2010) to submit their manuscripts, this Call for Papers is also open to the entire community of academics and practitioners. Topics for this special issue include (but are not limited to):
- •Theoretical developments in goal programming;
- •Exact solution methods for multi-objective problems;
- •Hybrid and parallel metaheuristics for multi-objective problems; and
- •Applications of MOP and GP.
Each paper will be peer-reviewed according to the editorial policy of ITOR (http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/118505725/home), published by the International Federation of Operational Research Societies – IFORS. Papers should be original, unpublished, and not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. They should be prepared according to the instructions to authors that can be found at the journal homepage.
Authors should upload their contributions using the submission site http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/itor, indicating in their cover letter that the paper is intended for this special issue. Other inquiries should be sent directly to any of the Guest Editors in charge of this issue: Taïcir Loukil (firstname.lastname@example.org) and João Climaco (email@example.com).
